Lightning in slow motion

Multiple tower upward lightning flash captured at 9,000 images per second in Rapid City, South Dakota, USA. A preceding downward positive ground flash triggers upward leaders from seven towers, three of which are visible in the video. The minute-and-a-half video covers less than two seconds of real time.

  1. I’m more amazed at how many tiny flashes are going on in the background in those 2 seconds! O_o
